I graduated from UTHScSA in 1989.I still remember my interview orientation in 1985 when Dr Pestana gave 3 examples of future medical student of which one was a pilot,another one was in a marathon.I still consider myself very lucky that I was accepted to this great school.Dr Pestana was also my attending along with Dr Page in third year.This interview is very good.His opinions and views and optimism is very refreshing.I will tell all my friends to watch this great man.It's his teaching and fatherly concern that all graduates are doing well.Bravo for placing this video for everyone to see.
